Katie is on a whirlwind promotional tour for her new book and the episode begins as she is doing the rounds on breakfast television, first with GMTV and then with Lorraine Kelly.

Back at home, things are less comfortable for Peter, who is on day one of his new fitness regime to get back in shape. It’s 8.30am but Peter has only just got out of bed and is lacking motivation. But his new personal trainer is an ex-marine commando and he isn’t going to take any of Peter’s nonsense. He puts Peter through a grueling, and sometimes hilarious, training session which pushes Peter to his limits. Afterwards Peter is all smiles and tells all the male viewers at home to get in shape and that he will be their ambassador!

We rejoin Katie as she is leaving the television studios, who is as ever, being followed around by her loyal “pack” of press hounds. She has a small window before her next interview and so decides to drop into the bead shop in Covent Garden as she is making a blanket for Princess. As she browses the beads, there are loads of paparazzi at the window all desperate for her picture. Next stop on Katie’s tour is at the BBC for a radio interview in Ireland. Katie sits in the radio booth for ages as no one has told when she is going live. After a few minutes of making silly faces, she gets bored and ends up playing with the mixing desk messing up all the sound levels.

As Katie is busy cramming as much into her day as possible, Peter is moving at a slightly slower pace and, having recovered from his training session, is now looking for a Valentine’s card for Katie. He doesn’t want to buy one and would prefer to just tell her he loves her but manager Claire convinces him it’s a good idea. When he eventually finds the right card, he struggles to find the right words.

Katie finishes off a few more interviews and then meets up with Peter in town, and although its still two days to Valentine’s Day, Peter just can’t wait and gives Katie his card. Katie reads out the card – it’s very touching and she tells him that he “can definitely have sex tonight”!

The next day and Peter is taking Harvey for his regular hospital check up. Harvey is in a great mood and is making lots of jokes with Peter. Unfortunately, Peter gets lost on the way and is late for the appointment. To make it worse, when he arrives he just can’t find a space in the car park. He drives round and round stressing out that he’s going to get in trouble before he eventually finds a place. On his way out he sees a space right next to the hospital front door. When he comes out of the hospital, Peter is clutching notes that he has written down from what the doctor has told him. He explains the doctor told him that Harvey won’t get better, but that they need to start focusing on him as an individual and his own personal needs.

Back at home, Katie and Harvey are having a photo shoot together for a magazine. Harvey is amusing people by bouncing on top of everyone, which ends up being particularly painful for Peter due to where Harvey is bouncing. The next day is Valentine’s Day but for Katie it’s all work as today is her big book launch in Waterstone’s. She is dressed for the occasion, as a superhero, and will be accompanied on stage by four hunky ‘Clark Kents’. Eventually her moment arrives and everything goes to plan…except her revealing dress reveals a little too much and there is plenty of press about this the following day.

Following on from the launch, the next day Katie and Peter take to the road for a short tour of the country to promote her book as Katie always wants to meet the people that support her. On the way, Katie and Peter play a game to see who can do the best accents. This is a hilarious sequence as neither of them seems able to do any. They arrive in Swindon – Katie is busy signing all her books but the fans are delighted to see Peter as well. There are some fun and games in the hotel that night, but the next day an argument develops in the car on the way to the next location. Katie is not interested in the properties that Peter has been looking at and Peter gets annoyed as he has come all the way to Wales to support her. Neither of them back down and there is an uncomfortable silence for much of the journey, which many couples will be able to relate too.

They arrive in Bristol and Katie rushes off to work. Peter sheepishly appears a few hours later and apologises. Happy again, Katie launches into her final book signing session and when they are done, its time for everyone to head home.
